Elementary school-age children and their families are invited to Holiday ARTSaturday, the Arts Council's free crafts and music workshop, on Saturday, Dec. 7, 10 a.m. to noon, in the Cowee Heritage Center (the former Cowee Elementary School). All materials for make-and-take projects are provided by the Council or donated. Projects include evergreen swags, ornaments, holiday card baskets, paper poinsettias and garlands, Christmas cookies to decorate, and more, plus free face painting by Mary Bennett, caroling with keyboardist Lionel Caynon, and refreshments by Cowee Community Development Organization. Pre-registration is not required; children should wear play clothes and come for any part of the session. Adults stay with their young children.
ARTSaturday is sponsored by the Joe Suminski Family to honor their grandmothers, Anne Gallup and Colleen Suminski, and produced by the Arts Council of Macon County and is supported by the Grassroots Arts Program of the North Carolina Arts Council.
